Summer Olympics 2016 are starting Saturday. What a great opportunity to get your kids interesting in sports! I remember the 1996 Olympics and the magnificent 7 gymnasts. I thought it was amazing the flips they could pull off while spinning through the air.
Here are a few fun Olympic themed foods.
Create your own backyard Olympics with obstacle courses with pool noodles, ball or javelin throws, ring toss with paper towel rolls and low balance beams. Have your kids make flags to represent the different nations competing. Pin them on a cork backed map. What a great way to educate on diversity and having a bigger world vision!
Make your kids feel like an Olympian by documenting their medal status in chalk.
These pretzels are easy enough to include the whole family in the making.
If you're kids are looking for a few more facts about the Olympics these books are full of helpful information.
Have fun and go for the gold!
